From a creative standpoint, it would hurt them a bit
We're just going to have to disagree about that. :smile:

I wouldn't say Darin does not have Days in his long-term career plans. If he didn't, why even bother to sign a contract last year? Why say that you are willing to do both? Why not just quit now? The fact that he hasn't yet tells me he doesn't want to leave for whatever reason (economy, etc). I mean, he landed a pilot and his name has been in a tabloids a bit. He's got more going for him then Rachel Melvin, who actually has quit, yet Darin has hinted at trying to make it work, which speaks volumes IMO.
I guess I see it differently. I'm sure Darin regards Days as job security, meaning that since they offered him a contract, he signed. However, I think at the same time, he could be thinking about other avenues for his career. Regarding his comment about wanting to make both work, I think he just wanted to get that statement 'on the record', so that if Days comes back and tells him that they can't accommodate him (or who knows, maybe they already have), Darin can say, hey, wasn't me! I wanted to make both work! In other words, a comment like that could just as easily be a negotiating move as it could an honest statement about his priorities.
